No joy.

LOM appears to be working fine, but I can't get anything out of the system on power-up - I can flip from console to LOM and back again, but nothing ever appears from the console.

Is there a way to reset this system? If it had a keyboard attached I'd do a "stop-n" and reset the NVRAM (this has saved a few Ultra desktops from the scrapper for me), but without a keyboard attached to the system I am at a loss...

Thanks in advance,
